7:35 am
the foundation? >> it comes down to a lot of things. it comes down to the contaminants. it comes down to the damage the heat causes and comes down to the simple economics of it and trying to get all the debris off the ground in a safe, coordinated manner. >> reporter: they learned that coordination comes with a cost to taxpayers. the bill for the removal was $18,000. records show that's much lower than what the government paid to clean up homesites. goodman's bill was higher, $83,000. the insurance will pay $55,000 the rest billed to the government. the higher cost comes from paying prevailing wage and a premium for a speedy clean up of toxic materials and environmental testing. >> schools, day cares, running street sweepers, doing things for the community at the same time we are cleaning up the home.

7:40 am
russian collusion during the presidential election, president trump's former national security adviser admits to lying to the fbi. political analyst, larry, joins us live to see what it means to the overall investigation. the sharks were looking for their third straight win on the road. we'll show you how they did in the sunshine state. sports are next.

7:43 am
that road trip. 49ers kick off at 10:00 a.m. the raiders at 1:25. they host the giantings. we'll have the highlights for you. more news after the break. general michael flynn struck a
7:44 am
7:45 am
deal by pleading guilty to one >> in a stunning development, general michael flynn struck a deal pleading guilty to one count of lying to the fbi agents working for special counsel robert mueller. this is the latest development in the seven month investigation of possible collusion between trump campaign officials and russian operatives during the 2016 campaign. what is the significance of this? larry joins us this morning. talk to us about why the bargain is so important. is it the first domino? >> dominos, dots connecting, whatever you want to say. something serious is going on here. a plea bargain occurs when prosecutors decide to reduce the charges against someone in
7:46 am
exchange for valuable information provided by that person. in this case, flynn agreed to a single count of lying to the fbi in exchange for information about others in trump's orbit who may have been working with russians to help trump's campaign against hillary clinton. now, don't be fooled, he did this to avoid other charges that could result in flynn being imprisoned for a long, long time. prosecutors typically don't sign off on plea bargains unless they really believe they are going to learn something much more important. in other words, they use flynn as a small fish, possibly leading him to large fish. >> okay. we talk about this and george papadopoulos is in this. mueller is throwing the book at paul manafort and his colleague. why such a big difference there? >> papadopoulos, flynn, both of those folks agreed to help the
7:47 am
special prosecutor. manafort and gates rejected cooperation. for now, their trials are scheduled for next may. if found guilty, they could face a dozen or more years in prison. these two types of treatment show which route they may want to take, cooperate or a high-stakes court battle. manafort and gates may reconsider a plea bargain as the trials near. the longer they hold out, the more, the more mueller is going to want in return. >> at this point, knowing what you know now, what we have seen and what's reported, do you think this investigation focuses just on the relationship between trump campaign operatives and the russians or do you think there's more? >> that's a good question. in this kind of inquiry, there's a special counsel with latitude to determine if anything illegal has happened. mueller began with examining the collusion issue. he has begun looking into
7:48 am
whether president trump may have obstruct obstructed justice by firing fbi director, james comey, to prevent investigation of general flynn. you might remember this, that obstruction of justice is one of the impeachment charges against president bill clinton. >> the president has since sent a flurry of tweets saying he never told comey to stop investigating flynn. so, that's the president's stamp on that. who do you think is coming up next, possibly, in this effort? >> here we go. there aren't that many more people who are higher on the food chain. we know this. in his confession, flynn claims he had taken orders from someone very high up in the trump campaign. whose left? those who may be considered next would be kt mcfarland, trump's naxal security adviser from the campaign. jared kushner, the president's son-in-law, or donald trump jr.
7:49 am
of course, these people worked intimately with the president during his campaign and after. >> in some cases, credited with helping donald trump win the presidency. they are very close. >> they are as close as you get. they are the inner circle of the inner circle. >> can the president do anything to stop these investigations? >> yeah. that's a great question. a lot of people are asking that. potentially, sure. potentially, yes. but at great peril to his presidency. look, the president could hire a new attorney general, sure, who would then fire mueller and thus end investigation. or, he could pardon those who plea bargained as well as others sentenced down the road. okay? that would make things very, very difficult for the president and, of course, congress has to deal with this thing, given that the obstruction of justice issue could bring on impeachment charges. look, this is serious stuff, okay? we are getting to critical points here. what happens is the president
7:50 am
calls the mueller investigation a which hunt. okay. others are beginning to believe many laws have been broken. the lingering question is, how far up the political food chain does mueller have to go to get to the truth? >> another lingering question, how much do the american people care? we have tax reform and health care. obviously, the supporter who put president trump in office. they think this is a witch hunt as well. >> they do. if you are a true believer of the trump administration, and there are many, this is surprise money, face, you name it. we are beginning to see a pattern here. papadopoulos. gates. monofort. now flynn. and flynn getting an easy sentence because he's holding back so much he's going to share with mueller. this is not a good time if you are worried about president trump, it is not a good time at all. we'll find out what happens in
7:51 am
the months and years to come. it didn't look like this investigation is going away as president trump's attorney said would happen by the end of the year. that's fantasy. >> okay. larry, thank you so much for your insight. stay with us. we will be back soon. still ahead on "today in the bay," a christmas tree trend. why upside down trees are becoming the in thing. clearing skies in san jose. 49 degrees as we look for the return of king tides, coastal flooding possible. wind advisories later. who are these people?
